BOUNTIFULEach September, local growers celebrate Utah’s Eat Local Week, to celebrate the regional harvest, promote local agriculture and introduce those who haven’t already enjoyed home-grown fruits and vegetables with an opportunity to bring some home. 

This year, Utah Eat Local Week runs Sept. 6-13. The Bountiful Farmer’s Market, which is held each Thursday from 3 to 8 p.m., will join in the celebration on Sept. 11. And it’s the perfect time.

“The market is really in full bloom right now,” said Mary Carpenter, who directs the market. “Everything is at its peak, and there’s a full gamut of fruits, vegetables and meats.”

Eat Local Week coordinator Carly Gillespie said the weeklong event has three goals: to develop a greater awareness of food production, transportation and consumption; to educate the community about local resources for eating locally, and to support local food purveyors.

More information on the event can be found online at eatlocalweek.org.
